The senseless death of young people on the street hit close to home today.

Senseless and so very sad.
The appalling cuts and underfunding, by Christy Clark’s BC Liberal Party, for services for kids and families, the cuts to Public Education, Pyschologists, Testing, Counselling, Social Services, Health Services all lead to these kinds of tragedies.
Act. Vote for change and humanity in our BC Government.
